I can't find the recipe I used a few years ago. I've got a lot of tomatoes growing and would love to make some more. Thanks!

Ginger, the two additional soups sound really good too. I was hoping to make a batch of something up, keep it in the fridge for a few days, and just grab a cup every time I felt the urge. It would just be me eating the soup. Do you think it would be best to leave out the dairy ingredients until right when I'm serving myself up? I always have plain yogurt on hand.

Does anyone have the Gazpacho recipe from Robert Carrier's Great Dishes of the World please? It is the best one ever.

This was a big hit with my friend and I when we had it on a recent trip to Hilton Head Island, SC. The best gazpacho we had ever tasted!

I made this recipe twice in the last couple of weeks; the second time I used Spicy V8 juice instead of tomato juice - kicked it up a notch! You could certainly use fresh diced tomatoes instead of canned.

I'm going to hilton head in August. I'll definitely have to check out Charley's Crab. For one I love crab and for two I'll have to compare their gazpacho recipe with mine.
